IFRP - ICIRR Partner Resources

DuPage Federation on Human Services has a long history of supporting its community partners efforts to assist their clients with access - language access and public benefits access.  We do this through education, technical assistance, training and language access services.

We are pleased to provide language access resources, interpreter training, public benefits training, and technical assistance to ICIRR partners, free of charge for qualifying circumstances. We have dedicated this page to ICIRR partners and populated it with information and resources we believe would be useful to you. 

 

You will find information and access to current trainings (interpreter and public benefits), access for requesting language assistance services, and additional resources.  We encourage you to review what is available and to contact us if you have any questions.
